Sophie Allport Collaborates With the National Trust On New Woodland Collection
British homewares and lifestyle brand Sophie Allport has collaborated with the National Trust on a striking new collection. The Woodland collection celebrates woodland creatures and the mighty oak tree with acorn branches dotted between the red squirrels, deer, pheasants, hedgehogs and the occasional owl.
Sophie explained; “I was inspired to design the new Woodland range from my many visits to National Trust places, both as a child, and now with my young family. The collection reminds me of those magical happy times.”
The new range has 26 products including fine bone china mugs,jug and a tea bag tidy. There’s also a range of Sophie’s popular kitchen textiles including tea towel, apron, oven gloves and roller hand towel. Other products include a quirky Owl doorstop, ironing board cover and knitted statement cushion.
At least £10,000 will be donated to the National Trust from the sale of the Woodland collection, to support the charity with the ongoing conservation of the places in its care.
Clare Brown, Head of Brand Licensing for the National Trust, comments “The fact that Sophie’s collection is deeply rooted in her childhood experience of nature and the National Trust, shows how important it is that these places are protected for future generations.
With every itempurchased we can continue to ensure that our houses, garden, parks, coastline and countryside inspire children and families for many years to come.”
Prices start at £8.00 and will be available from sophieallport.com from 1st August 2018 or on 01778 560256.

The National Trust was founded in 1895 by three people who saw the importance of our nation’s heritage and open spaces and wanted to preserve them for everyone to enjoy. More than 120 years later, these values are still at the heart of everything the conservation charity does.
Entirely independent of Government, the National Trust looks after more than 250,000 hectares of countryside, 775 miles of coastline and hundreds of special places across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
More than 24 million people visit every year, and together with 5 million members and over 65,000 volunteers, they help to support the charity in its work to care for special places for ever, for everyone. For more information and ideas for great seasonal days out go to: www.nationaltrust.org.uk.
